We have chanced upon some photos of the first car that was driven in Ekiti State.
The photos were shared by the popular Nigerian blog on the popular social media platform, Instagram, yoruba_blog.
According to the post, the first car was bought by Oba Adejuwon Olojudo of Ido Ekiti who reigned from 1915 to 1938.
The post reads;
“The First Car in Ekiti State.
